Help & Buying Guides

Why choose a kingsize mattress?

When it comes to mattresses, bigger ones can be better. King size mattresses offer an expansive sleeping surface, measuring 150cm in width and 198cm in length, which is an extra six inches wider and three inches longer than a standard double. 

One of the most often-overlooked considerations is whether or not you have the room. However, as long as there is room at either side for each person to get in and out, there’s no reason to pass up the chance to doze off on a superior sleeping surface.

For those with larger bedrooms, a king size mattress on a king size bed will act as a stunning centrepiece. To add impact and appeal to the aesthetics, crown yours with a well-chosen headboard. These are available in a range of designs, materials, and colours, so you can choose one to suit your surroundings.

Generally speaking, king size mattresses are ideal for those who are a little wider or taller than the average person. The extra length will prevent those with longer legs from exposing their feet to the cold, while the additional width gives plenty of room for your bedfellow.

King size mattresses are also beneficial for those prone to nocturnal wriggling. To minimise motion transfer between sleepers, look for king size mattresses with pocket springs. These are springs individually housed in fabric pockets. Free to move independently, they react to the movement of each sleeper without causing the rest of the mattress to wobble. With the added space, you can shift position throughout the night, and your partner won't feel a thing.

What size is a king size mattress?

All our king size mattresses are 5' x 6' 6" (150 cm x 200 cm). This is both longer and wider than a double mattress, which measures 135cm x 190cm, and comfortably accommodates two sleepers. King size mattresses are incredibly popular in the UK, and they’re especially loved by families with young children who appreciate that bit of extra space for the little ones to climb into in the mornings. In fact, there are only two types of mattresses that are bigger: the super-king mattress, and the emperor.

The depth of a king mattress varies depending on what sort of option you choose. The shallowest choices are around 14cm deep, which are very lightweight and convenient. The thickest options are around 35cm deep, offering a little more comfort for those who like a more robust feel to their king size bed.

King size mattresses work great with our range of King size divan beds.

Choose your perfect king size mattress by type:

There are many different options available when it comes to a king size 5ft mattress, allowing you to select your preferred firmness, material, and spring count. King size mattresses are available in a soft to extra firm feel and with spring counts ranging from 800-1200 to more than 4000. In terms of material, there’s a wealth of choice, with everything from pocket and Miracoil springs to natural fillings, memory foam, gel foam, and even medical grade options. Our most popular options of 5ft mattresses include pocket sprung and memory foam.

Pocket sprung king size mattresses

A pocket sprung king size mattress features individual springs which are wrapped up in their own cloth sleeve. This allows the mattress to be responsive to movements throughout the night. These designs are usually available in a medium to firm king size mattress, which can help promote good posture while providing a comfortable night’s sleep.

If you sleep on your back, then you will need a higher level of support to ensure your spine is correctly aligned. For the best support, we recommend pocket sprung mattresses. We advocate a firm or medium-firm king size mattress.

Memory foam king size mattresses

A king size memory foam mattress is made from a special foam material that moulds to the body’s contours as you change sleeping position. These mattresses are especially popular amongst people who suffer from back pain, as they provide a good level of support and cushion your joints.

A king size memory foam mattress is perfect for side sleepers, as you'll benefit from a mattress that provides a lot of cushioning, especially if you have wide hips or shoulders. A medium or softer king size mattress would be ideal.

Hybrid king size mattresses

Also called a combination mattress, a hybrid king size mattress combines foam comfort with supportive pocket spring layers. As a result, you'll have great back support and maximum comfort.

Hybrid king size mattresses are ideal for those who sleep on their front. For pressure relief, it's important that front sleepers find a good balance between comfort and support. Hybrid mattresses with pocket springs are the most comfortable in this situation, as front sleepers need some cushioning, but less than a side sleeper would.

Orthopaedic king size mattresses

We offer an array of orthopaedic king size mattresses that enhance back support. These types of mattresses are also called ortho mattresses and are considerably firmer than standard models. Perfect if you tend to sleep on your back, an orthopaedic king size mattress will ensure your spine is aligned.

Octaspring king size mattresses

Dormeo developed the Octaspring to create a cooler, fresher feel but with the same responsive feel of memory foam. Octasprings allow up to eight times more airflow, creating a fresher feel that’s great for anyone who suffers from night sweats. The firmness rating sits in the medium range, making them suitable for most sleepers. 

Latex king size mattresses

If you like the feel of memory foam but want something a little greener, natural fibres is the right choice. Latex king size mattresses are not only hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, but they are also more biodegradable at the end of their life. They’re a friendlier choice if you want to keep your carbon footprint down.

Pillow top king size mattresses

A combination of firm support but that deliciously soft, sinking-into-bed feel at the end of a busy day, a pillow-top king size mattress gives you all the comfort you could need. The softer feel is ideal if you prefer to sleep on your front or side. They’re also usually single-sided so they’re easier to maintain.
